Yeah. Try not to stand in tempting clumps of players. Expertise might help reduce damage a bit, but your best bet is to heal up faster than he can hit you. Stun/root him and get out of there after his leap before he smashes, if you can - you can't always. Get a tank to guard you and make sure they don't stand close enough to get hit by the same smashes.

Basically, as said, it's OP and you'll have to live with it until Bioware get around to nerfing it.

When he leaps, Hidden Strike him and hope it puts him on his face

Unless you have a mustache with grey hairs in it, calling someone son makes you sound like a dick.

Wait till you hit 50 OP, then you will get nailed for twice that on a reoccurring occasion.

I'm just gonna drop this here,

for 3 days I played on focus spec, lemme tell you its boring as all hell, the worse 1 trick pony of all.
I'm completely min maxdd wh with some pieces of elite war hero mixed in as I'm min maxing ewh now.

my biggets crit against an annoying assassin were 2 x 8k+ sweeps.
I want at least one of my attacks on combat spec to hit like that.....

besides that its a terrible spec and only guardian/juggernauts should use it, mara/sents on focus spec are just braindead terrible players.

IIRC "base damage" means how much damage the ability will do if you have no gear equipped and no talents chosen. So it's never going to be close to how much the ability will actually hit for, especially if it's one that auto-crits like Force Sweep and has various damage multipliers and surge bonuses (plus the fact that the character may have been twinked).

i have seen yesterday a 9904 sweep, not on myself, but i did see someone do it... hilarious to say the least.

The auto crit needs to be removed.

Did hit someone for 6k+ in the 10-49 bracket, the Smasher has to be completely twinked out and the target has to be very undergeared, probably with debuffs as well.
